Tuesday's Teacher

Wow...two weeks in a row and I am on the ball! Can you believe it? Here is today's Bible verse:

You did awesome things for which we did not expect. Isaiah 64:3

God is good and I just love it when he does the unexpected in our lives! Our expectations are usually based on our past experiences, which are in turn seen through the prism of unanswered prayers. A part of the joy and hope of living our daily lives is in the anticipation that God is He who answers prayers. I hope that you live your life from day to day with the expectation that God will answer our prayers, a lot of times he does not answer them when or how we want them because He has a greater plan for us, one that only He knows! I hope that you take a few moments today and pray in expectant joy of the movement og His Spirit among the people of our Nation as a whole, but also our friends and family and the people we come in catact with today! May God bless you today and always!

Product Review

On Tuesday's I usually do either a tutorial or a product review...and today is the time for a product review!

We are reviewing the mono multi (item # 110755, cost $3.95) as far as price goes, it isn't one of the spendiest adhesives, and you can make a TON of cards, scrapbook pages whatever really, with it.

I love the fact that it has 2 size applicators, a pen tip on one side for precision reach, and a broad tip on the other for bigger projects.

What else do I like? I love the fact that it can be used permanent or temporary (just follow the onstructions on the bottle) But most of all I LOVE that it doesn't buckle my card...even when I use designer paper which is lighter weight than the cardstock! It is perfect for embelishments and anything else you want to adhere...except ribbon, I'm partial to ny ATG for ribbon and boxes!

I love it...so that means you should try it too!

Here Are some samples made with the adhesive...like you can tell...LOL

Both of these cards were made for todays color challenge on Splitcoast Stampers...we had to use real red, glorious green and night of navy. I used mytogether forever set and sincere Salutations an oldie but goodie! (gosh when did this set get old? It seems like I just got it yesterday!)

I love the jumbo eyelet going right through both ribbons and the scallops are my fav...big news about scallops and SU! comming soon, you will want one of these I'm telling you right now!!!

okay these colors totally made me think Christmas, so I went ahead and made some Christmas cards...cuz you know you can't have too many! I used the stamp set peaceful wishes (item# 106754) and Shimmery white cardstock (item #), real red wide grosgrain ribbon (item#109052) and hunter grosgrain ribbon (retired) used a ribbon slider from the Stylized hodgepodge kit (item# 111325) (available only unti May 31st!) The designer paper you see is the summer picnic designer series paper (item#111355) from the occasions mini and the color spritzer tool (item #107066) (hadn't used that in a while!)

What do you think? not too bulky for mailing and a great color combo!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy stampin'

Sylvia, these cards are great! Love the way you integrated a product highlight with card design. That's a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration.
